Shine supports people with mental ill health and their families and friends in a number of different ways. Many people are frightened of the idea of mental ill health and the various diagnostic titles such as Psychosis, Schizophrenia, Bi Polar Disorder, Depression are seen as life long labels which mark the person as different from the rest of society. Mental health recovery can be described as a journey of healing and transformation enabling a person with a mental health problem to live a meaningful life in the community, while striving to achieve his of her full potential. The Regional Development Officers can deal with your questions and queries in person or on the phone and provide you with more detailed person specific information. They can also introduce you to a suitable support group if you feel that would be helpful. The Regional office will also have relevant and up to date information on local mental health services, information resources, training and employment services and other community resources. Shine has offices in Dublin, Cork, Ennis, Galway, Kilkenny, Tullamore and Dundalk.
